Scholarships in elite private schools

The Australian Council for Educational Research has tracked the VCE outcomes of more than 2000 recipients of year 7 scholarships to independent schools and found, perhaps not surprisingly, that scholarship recipients are "the brightest of the bright".

ACER's analysis of the scholarship holders' VCE results from 2004 to 2013 showed they received a median score of 98.1 in their final years of school, putting them in the top 1.9 per cent of all students. 

But the results highlight the lack of clarity surrounding independent school scholarships, with few schools revealing how many scholarships are offered each year, at what rate – and who pays for them.
